SPOTLIGHT SUNDAY IS HERE!
This is a new feature to my blog where I will spotlight certain things in the book world that I think should get spotlighted. Books varying from future releasing books, new releasing or already released, and not all sitting under the YA title!Maybe some websites that are great for those book worms, other blogs and much more!
For today's spotlight I have chose The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 1 by HITRECORD and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This book tiny book is full of 67 contributors as art and short stories are combined to fill this witty and clever book.
So what is HitRecord? The company was set up by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (yes, the actor and director) and his brother, Dan Gordon-Levitt. The website (http://www.hitrecord.org) was launched in 2005 to share the thriving community of creativity in media including video, literature, music, photography, spoken word, performance, script writing, graphics and much much more! It has spread the creativity worldwide and in 2010 it launched a new scheme where contributor can charge for their individual pieces.
So here as I am writing this I have this tiny book, it does stick true to it's name, sitting next to me. It is a hard back book with crepe like paper bound around it with the symmetric front printed on the front. The drawings in this book really reflects the talent that is around as they vary from page to page.
The stories are full of wit with a combination of cleverly thought stories. It is hard not to smile as you read through the book.
I encourage anyone who has wishes to have a future with something creative to check out the HitRecord website, or maybe if you have a hobby which has some sort of creativity in it. It is a really nice website where you can view other peoples work...maybe do a bit of shopping at their shop?
